Adult Night Hike: Books and Botany

Program Details

Books and Botany

September 30th

7:30-9pm

Through the power of flowers, Shakespeare told dirty jokes, Jane Austen subverted the patriarchy, and Sara J Mass has blended disparate fairy lore from around the world.  It is a common trope for authors to use plants to subtly, or not so subtly, drive a point home.  In this night hike, we will explore the gardens in search of plants that are embedded in the pages of our favorite stories and what the authors were trying to tell us.  We will also trace books back through their botanical origins down to the very papyrus that they were written on.
